The Year in Review and Our Plans for 2018

As this year comes to a close, we at Stadium wanted to reflect on the year that has been, and look forward to the year ahead. Most importantly, we want to thank you, our users, for trusting us to meet your development needs and look forward to working with you in 2018.

A year ago we had spreadsheets full of goals and we’re proud to say we knocked (most of) them out of the park. Thank you for making 2017 unforgettable.

In 2017, we were proud to bring you

  • Direct Page-Script interaction

    Being able to access page controls directly from inside scripts allows for simplified and more powerful scripting.
  • Session Variables: Logged-in user information

    Basic information of the logged-in user can now be used in the application.
  • User REST Web Api

    Basic management of the Stadium users in generated applications.
  • Simplified query creation

    Use the Tables & Views Pane to quickly and easily generate queries for specific tables or views. Also use this pane to see what tables and columns are available in your database while writing your query.
  • Expressions

    Build expressions by using a combination of javascript and application values and then assign the result of the expression to either controls or actions.

What’s in store for 2018!?

We are already planning some exciting updates, including more features, updates to the UI and a further streamlined experience including a new website.
  • Events

    PageLoad and OnChange are some of the many other events we will be introducing. This will allow designers to greatly enhance the interactivity and the user experience of applications built with Stadium.
  • Static Data

    Include files & images as static data into your Stadium application and use them in controls and actions.
  • Stadium Server

    The Stadium Server will allow deploying applications to remote servers as well as managing your already generated applications.
  • File System DataSource

    A DataSource that will allow you to access your filesystem.
  • WebService DataSource

    This DataSource will allow you to invoke and use a WebService like you would a database.

Lastly, we want to implement the great feedback you are giving us - so please continue to let us know what you’re working on and never be shy to suggest new features and improvements.

It’s been a year of highs and lows, but one thing is certain: all of us at Stadium are proud of what we and our users have accomplished in the past year. Your work is the reason why we come to work everyday. We are dedicated to bring your ideas, your creativity, and your businesses to life on the web - and we couldn’t do it without you.

Happy holidays

The Stadium team
